With Steve Cook
Throughout most of human history, how our bodies looked was determined by our struggle to survive, not by a conscious choice to look a certain way. Not anymore. Today, we have the means to shape our bodies as we see fit.
The Modern Physique program is designed to maximize eight specific physical qualities: strength, power, symmetry, muscularity, flexibility, endurance, definition, and athleticism. Each of these pillars will help you build a body worthy of history.

Strength | Steve Cook's Modern Physique
One of the most important pillars of a modern physique is strength.
Power | Steve Cook's Modern Physique
Power is strength and speed combined. It's an essential part of the modern physique and the modern athletic man.
Symmetry | Steve Cook's Modern Physique
Symmetry not only looks great, but it's a sign of a healthy body. Any injuries, imbalances, and weaknesses are going to show up in your muscularity.
Muscularity | Steve Cook's Modern Physique
While they're related, strength and muscularity aren't the same. You can be strong without being muscular, or you can have 'mirin-worthy muscles without being strong.
Flexibility | Steve Cook's Modern Physique
Flexibility and mobility are essential to training. If you don't correct small imbalances in your body on a regular basis, there's a high risk of injury.
Endurance | Steve Cook's Modern Physique
Endurance is your body's ability to stay active for a long period of time. In your Modern Physique workouts, you've been training both muscular and cardiovascular endurance.
Definition | Steve Cook's Modern Physique
Definition is the ability to see the shape of your muscles. A modern physique isn't complete without round shoulders that cut into big biceps and triceps, and teardrop quads that are flanked by ropy hamstrings.
Athleticism | Steve Cook's Modern Physique
Looking good isn't enough. Athleticism brings together size, strength, and symmetry to provide you with the multidimensional look of the modern physique.
